A Texas tradition

 Here in Texas, we have a tradition every spring. That's when bluebonnets start to blanket our roadsides and fields with masses of gawjuss Texan flowers. It's a tradition for people to haul out their kids and take pictures of them in the bluebonnets. Our Best Guy is a photographer, and he complains about how hard it was in days of film to develop all those pictures with the right balance of blue flowers, human skin tones, and usually white clothes. So Momma was surprised but happy that he volunteered to get some pictures of Yours Truly in some bluebonnets he spotted near his work.

And the result?


Yeah. I know. I'm gawjuss. BOL! Thanks, Best Guy! 


PeeS: I was safely leashed during the pictures, because it was near a road, but the leash was edited out of the picture.

    1. Hi dog lover,

      No matter what your dog’s problem behavior is…

      Be it jumping, peeing inappropriately, aggression, pulling on the leash…or whatever…

      There is ONE SOLUTION that can help STOP this problem now

      The sad fact is…

      Most Dog trainers miss this solution entirely.

      They give you cookie cutting training programs.

      They use outdated and ‘mean’ dominance techniques.

      Or worse yet…

      They have no qualifications and are complete phonies.

      So what’s the answer to stopping your Dog’s behavior problems?

      In 4 simple words…

      Discovering your dog’s hidden intelligence.

      Let me explain…

      In my 10 years as a certified trainer…there’s ONE BIG LESSON I have learned.

      More intelligent dogs are better behaved.

      A More intelligent dog takes commands easier

      …and understands what you need from them.

      The good news is…

      No matter how clever you think your dog is.

      You can >>> Unlock their hidden intelligence quickly and easily.

      You can >>> I’ll explain everything on this page.

      Don’t waste a second longer coping with problem behaviors you don’t need to be dealing with.

    PS Back in October, Gail's American friend Marse asked if she'd liked to join her and some other friends on a cycling vacation this April based in Fredericksburg in the Hill Country in Texas, and the bluebonnets were one of the attractions. Gail would love to have gone, but of course Covid prevented that.
